Pride of Cucamonga, if only because it was never played live at all. There are those rehearsals labeled 12/1/74:

I really like these workouts of the song & it's number one in my book for songs that needed to be played that were either NOT played at all, or only played a few times, such as Let It Rock, If I Had The World To Give, Unbroken Chain, Mission In The Rain, Money Money, etc. It sounds to me like they had Pride of Cucamonga in these recordings, so I can't figure why it wasn't done at least once. I heard said that Phils "voice was shot"---I think it was on the GD Archives before they changed the sight to what it is now.

I agree mostly except:
Black Peter (unfortunate timing often but handy for a bad trip I saw at Stanford)
Althea was best to me on Without A Net
Dire Wolf was fine though album is favorite

I like Touch of Grey better on album but the live experience (weaving through Kaiser hallways) was best in Reagan's America. It seemed more like a tribal stomp antidepressant before the album came out.
